2018 Festival of Quilts

The 2018 Festival and Quilts is opened today at the NEC (National Exhibition Centre) Birmingham.  It runs until Sunday and if you’re a fan of all things sewing its definitely worth a visit.

The event is a great blend of displayed work (from some amazingly talented quilters); workshops and stalls selling everything you might need from books to buttons and fabric to fancy sewing machines.

They even have a few sculptural pieces….
